. >> greta: john bolton joins us, ambassador, at the hearing today senator hagel is a republican. he got grilled by fellow republicans, didn't he? >> it wasn't so much the questions although they were stiff as the answers. this was a debacle for chuck hagel today. if his nomination is defeated, we'll look back and say this was the place where it went down in flames. not only was he not able to defend many of his earlier statements, but he demonstrated a lack of command over the subject matter that he would be responsible for if confirmed. he couldn't identify what the obama administration's policy was. i think one of the telling exchanges changes when he first said that he supported containing a nuclear iran. someone hands him and a note and reads the note, i guess i misspoke. we don't have a policy on containing a nuclear iran and senator levin has to tell him, we do have a policy. we're not in favor of containment. we want to prevent iran from getting a nuclear weapon in the first place. the senator hagel can't even get that right, i think it really left his supporters on that committe
you an example. john boehner has come up with a proposal if you don't pass the budget you don't get paid. it has hit a nerve. now, they are going back home with three out four americans, if you are not going to do a job we're not going to pay you. that is not where barack obama wants to go. i think he is really concerned, not just about fox news but about talk radio and conservative blogs that there is a world out here that he can't control that communicates to the american people who as they learn the facts are much less likely to support his policies. >> greta: so, the other people the expenditure aspect of that. i suppose every other president before president obama did this, but the president gave a speech on immigration reform in nevada. he took air force one all the way up to nevada and gave a speech and brought it back. i suppose every president did that before him, but these are tough economic times for american people. it doesn't set a good example. >> i don't have a problem with it. i think it would be fascinating reported weekly how much they spent running around the coun
will look at details of what is going on and will decide -- i will give you an example. john boehner has come up with this proposal, if you don't pass a budget, you don't get paid. it has all of a sudden struck a cord, hit a nerve and the mary landrieu's of the world who haven't passed a budget in 3 years, are going home where three out of four americans are thinking, you know, if you don't do your job, we are not going to pay you, that's a good idea. that's not where barack obama wants to g. i think he is really concerned, not just about fox news, but talk radio and the conservative blogs, that there is a world that he can't control that communicates with the american people, who as they learn the facts are much less likely to support his policies. >> on that note, sort of the other people's money, the spending sort of aspect of that, i am curious, your thought -- i suppose every other president before president obama did this. but today, the president gave a speech on immigration reform in nevada and he took air force one all the way to nevada and gave a speech and brought it back. now
on fox news. >> and speaker of the house, john boehner saying that president obama told him we don't have a spending problem. really? former senator jim demint is here. if we have no spending problem, senator, why do we need to extend the debt ceiling? why do we need more money? >> greta, the president is running out of excuses. he can't blame the last administration because he is the last administration. president obama has spent more and created more debt than any president in history. yeast, we have the slowest recovery of any recovery in history. i spent last summer, going around my state, talking to small businesses, dozens of them. so it's very clear to me what's happening now. they were beginning to pull back because of the expected cost of obamacare, the dod-frank legislation, that was a federal takeover of our financial system is making it harder for businesses to get loans. you look at the expected tax increases, which businesses were trying to plan for, the uncertainty really goes back to the president's policies. it is not obstruction. i wish we had had more of it. the policie
security at the diplomatic mixes around the world? john bolton joins us. good evening, sir. >> i notice the white house quick to use the word terrorism in connection with this. not wanting to revisit the horror of how it was tree dee scribed last time. >> it is unclear who is responsible for this. the turkish government has claimed it was a left wing splinter group in turkey. i think it is much more likely it is al-qaeda or some affiliate, possibly iran. i don't think it is an internal turkish problem. the turkish government is trying to minimize the broader risk of an al-qaeda environment. >> the patriot missiles were just put up on the border with syria and syria is unhappy with that. and iran says any attack on syria is an attack on iran. there is a lot of people -- i'm not is suggesting israel did about but but a lot of unhappy people in the region. >> a strange attack. a one person affair against the american embassy in ankara. whatever the motive of the attackers, again, it is an american embassy being targeted and we are four months after the attack on becke. novicible retaliatio
